Michael Jackson’s “This Is IT”

12 Nov

ThisIsItThis Is It” is it! I have always been caught up in the spectacle of Michael Jackson since I was a little boy, growing up listening to his music, watching his videos and doing all that I could to mimic his dance moves and I have to say, sitting in the theatre watching Michael and his genius today, was just as awe inspiring. I wasn’t in my seat just watching, I was in my seat taking in his steps, that is when I wasn’t standing up dancing along with him and his background dancers, who had no chance of keeping up with him.

Everyone seems to want to talk about MJ and his life being so turbulent and weird but I feel that we should be focused on his genius and his contributions to music and to the world. I’ll admit that one can not totally erase his ‘mishaps’ from memory but why make his mistakes a focus? (Oh, yeah, almost forgot I am speaking of human beings.) Well others can focus on MJ’s many issues but I am going to focus on his abilities to inspire and delight everyone from age 1 to age 115.

This Is It” is another example of all that MJ encompassed: fun, fantasy, love, excitment, escapism, inspiration and something to hold on to for the remainder of our days. If you have not seen it, I encourage you to see it and if you are one of the millions who have seen it ‘CONGRATULATIONS,’ I know your life was changed for the better. “This Is It” receives 5 out of 5 stars from me and Michael, you have always been 5 star to me and you will live on in our heats, souls, minds and bodies for as long as Man can dance.

    I agree! I went in thinking it would be good, but was pretty blown away. All the more poignant given what happened just days before the concert was supposed to launch. I’m glad they (whoever) released it so that we could get a glimpse of Michael’s final opus.

    I loved the film. For the first time we were given a peek into MJ’s creative process. I think it solidified him as more of a genius than I had initially thought. He danced into our hearts then performed his way into history.
